@Gina Am a man in IT. Sometimes I feel like my ideas aren't taken seriously by the female techs. I'm constantly being coddled on things I already know, and downright patronized when learning new things.
The worst part is when they hit... pppfftt! Okay, that part I can't do with a straight face. Women hitting on me is... no, that -- that doesn't happen, not even in opposite land.
@Gina Just as an addendum, because people may have a hard time reading sarcasm.
The above is satire. As a male in IT, I do what I can to ensure that everyone on the team gets the same amount of assistance. Woman or man, I try to provide feedback or knowledge at their level of understanding. I take everyone's ideas seriously, except for my own, because I'm a colossal idiot.
@Gina Came to complain about birdsite. Stayed for the lulz. That's some good stuff.
@Gina Me too. I used to follow that account when I used Twitter in the past. It’s brilliant.
@Gina this is definitely one of my favorite accounts ever.
@milofultz the comments are gold 😂
@Gina Oh, throw it in our faces. You know men are weak and over-emotional, no need to remind us of it. Going to go cry in my bubblebah with a glass of red.
Actually, the bath and wine sounds pretty good...
@adam 4:00 on Friday and I just prevented Grunt from being added to a project. I think I get to be done for the week, right?
@robtarr wait what?! Well done sir.
